Get Out and Vote for Column A - Dierkes, Fortunato, Bonilla, on Tuesday Nov. 3rd

UNION COUNTY, NJ - Enough is enough already.  For the last two decades, Union County has experienced one party government and only one way of thinking (tax and spend and worry about it later) which has made Union County, New Jersey the 7th highest taxed county in the Nation!  Yes, you read that correctly, the 7th highest taxed county in the Nation!  Our seniors are leaving in droves, our young families can't afford to buy new homes and nobody wants to do business in Union County anymore.  

This upcoming election might not have the glamor or excitement of a Presidential election but the results certainly will have a profound effect on your everyday life and your future.  On Nov. 3rd you have a simple choice: you can stay home and allow the Democrats to continue raising taxes year after year OR you can send a clear message to restore accountability, fiscal responsibility and good governance to the Board of Chosen Freeholders.  

It’s not too late to right the ship but we can’t do it alone.  We need each and every one of you here in Union County at the ballot box on November 3rd exercising your right to vote. Enough is enough already, it's time to take back our local government.

More Traffic, No Solution – Letter to Governor Phil Murphy

July 17, 2018

Dear Governor Phil Murphy,

From the mid-1970’s, when I was age 12, I’ve had this vivid memory of watching my parents participate in a peaceful demonstration against the construction of a 12-story hotel complex just behind our backyard. In fact, on Wednesday, September 29, 1976, the local newspaper ran an article with a photo showing my mother and her protest placard. The memory of ...
